COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Brewed for the "Metro" supermarket chain); In an abbey great and towery, lived brothers talented in brewery. Ale this heavenly, alas!, led to drinkery...and now its rediscovery! Can you resist temptation?

Very uncomplex beer maybe a beginners Unibroue. The only way this would be irresistible would be to have naked playmates serving it. Clean and unpretentious with a slightly honeyed malt and lite fruit based spice.

Poured a cloudy honey colour with a thick frothy white head. Of course, there was the characteristic Unibroue smell, but also hints of vanilla and pear in the nose. Sparkling carbonation, nice mouthfeel. Alcohol well hidden, doesn’t seem as heavy as the noire. Much better than the noire to be honest. Fruity taste (lemon) but fairly dry as well. A great broue..I mean..brew.

Another great brew from Unibroue. Citrus, lemon, and bubbel gum flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry.

Gorbalev (2927) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2005
Bottle. Hazy dark yellow colour with a citrusy aroma. Small white head. Light, yeasty lemony taste. Refreshing and short finish, but suffers from being a little bland. Not bad, glad I tried it, thanks jercraigs.

Crockett (1008) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2005
Pours murky gold with orange hues. Some large solid dark particulate. Head disipates quickly to reveal an almost still liquid. Some prickly carbonation remains. I would have sworn this to be a hefeweissbier hybrid concoction. Wheat, yeast some banana and caramel. Faint honey and tangerine. Spicey bread crust and cookie malts. Not bad.

MillStreetMan (152) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2005
This was alright. Standard Unibroue flavour, with their unmistakable yeast flavour. Very, very similar to the Irrestible Noire, just ever so slightly falling behind. What can I say? It’s Unibroue, either you like it or you don’t.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2004
Poured cloudy yellow with a thin white head...lemon, pepper, and Unibroue yeast nose...great mouthfeel, soft yet active...too bad that really isn’t a lot going on in the flavor department...quite bland...some spices, yeast...seems like perhaps the best "introductory" beer to date for BMC drinkers though!

omhper (19460) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2004
Bottled. Cloudy golden, brief head. Restrained estery aroma. Dryish and lively with a vague hint of almonds. Typical Unibroue beer.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2004
Copper and hazy in colour. Aroma of citrus, oranges, Unibroue yeast. Flavour was light and smooth with some yeast and citrus. Finishes creamy with a medium bitterness. A decent beer but Unibroue has much better offerings.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2004 It may not be listed as such, but this is a witbier, no doubt about it. Not only that, but maybe the best witbier I have had to date. Colour is murky, hazy, straw with bits of sediment floating about. Perfect two fingers of dense, rocky head. Ambrosiac aroma of corriander and aged hops. Sweet malt with a perfect balance of citric spice and corriander. Full-bodied mouthfeel. Crisp, slighty tart aftertaste. Plus 7% alcohol to boot, which by the way is almost undetectable. Thanks Radiomgb.
